Allen Hickman has stepped down as director of parks and recreation for the city of Harriman.

City Manager Kevin Helms said Hickman turned in his letter of resignation Friday afternoon.

“I was a bit surprised. I’ve enjoyed working with Allen. I think he has a true passion for our community so I hate to see him go in that respect. I think he will still be involved with the community. I think that’s something we can still look forward to,” he said.
